They have made some changes over the years, and of course policies and prices rarely stay the same. So here are 5 things you need to know about Palace Multiplex before you go.

2. Can I buy my tickets online? – Ummm… No, sorry, not at this time.
When the movie franchise rolled out their convenient online tickets service in 2015, it was promoted as an easy to use and convenient service where patrons can buy tickets online by logging on to any internet device and simply retrieve the tickets, with a few simple steps, at kiosks in the cinemas.
Unfortunately, the service is not available at this time and the only way to get a ticket is to join the sometimes very long line to purchase tickets and the box office. It is recommended to arrive well before your movie’ start time to avoid the crowds and missing the awesome previews.
You can, however, call and reserve a Skybox (located on the second floor) or a Box seat (seats in the chained off area of the theatre) for added prestige and comfort. – Here’s to hoping no one is in your seat tho.
